    DMB just doesn’t do it for me. Hasn’t for the entire century. There, I said it.

    September (Earth, Wind and Fire) vs. For Reverend Green (Animal Collective): 8/4.5

    Interstate Love Song (Stone Temple Pilots) vs. I Wanna Be Your Lover (Prince):4.5/4.6
    Battle of mediocrity. Bah.

    Summer Home (Typhoon) vs. Australia (Shins): 7.95/8
    Going out on a limb here.

    I realize that I could never get into the drum production on DMB records. I will admit, however, that this is a pretty good song. Much more into it than most of their stuff. Also pretty amazing that the only songs in the tourney (?) which are numbers are up against each other?
    But this Phoenix album has yet to get old for me.

    September (Earth, Wind and Fire) vs. For Reverend Green (Animal Collective) = 8 to 8
    Wow, I really hated this Animal Collective song while listening to it at work, but being home and being able to turn it up loud was very different. This is a great song. I used to love these guys but hated the last few records and think I started to have a knee jerk reaction against them, which is lame. Great tune.

    Interstate Love Song (Stone Temple Pilots) vs. I Wanna Be Your Lover (Prince) = 6.5 to 7.5
    Good STP song, but this Prince song is killer. Could never get past the nonsensical STP lyrics though.

    Summer Home (Typhoon) vs. Australia (Shins) = 7 to 7
    Two types of bands I don’t usually groove to but into it tonight

    Overall, I’m going to try to do this at home more often and not at work so much.Such positive reviews from me tonight.

    Interstate Love Song (Stone Temple Pilots) vs. I Wanna Be Your Lover (Prince) 6.0 vs 5.5

    Summer Home (Typhoon) vs. Australia (Shins) 4.5 vs 6.0

  7. #41 (Dave Matthews Band) 7
    1901 (Phoenix) 7.2

    Anyone else notice #41 going into “Say Goodbye” at the end? Yes, at one point in my life I knew the Crash album quite well. 1901 takes this despite the fact that Girl Talk driven runs have me now wanting to follow up “Folded” with “how low can you go.”

    September (Earth, Wind and Fire) 8
    For Reverend Green (Animal Collective) 5.5

    FRG grew on me a bit. September is just a classic, I don’t think of it as a jingle at all.

    Interstate Love Song (Stone Temple Pilots) 6.5
    I Wanna Be Your Lover (Prince) 8

    Summer Home (Typhoon) 6.5
    Australia (Shins) 7

    This last match up irritates me because I don’t want one of these songs to go away yet. I love them both.
